Cookery

6TS are enjoying using the cookery room to create a variety of dishes using a range of skills. Our cooking so far has included sausage rolls, pizzas, scones, cakes and apple crumble.

IT

We have been using Scratch to learn about computer programming. We are learning how to create our own computer games. We have also enjoyed the engineering game Wired as part of our electricity topic.

Art

We have looked at the work of artists such as Frank Catherwood and Beatriz Milhazes. We created our own work inspired by theirs. Now we are looking at the work of LS Lowry. We are working together to create a whole class painting in his style.

History

As part of our Mayan topic, we found out about the different gods and goddesses worshipped by the ancient Maya. We have made Mayan style clay pots and designed our own masks inspired by those worn by the Maya.

Science

Our science topic this term is Light. We have explored what light actually is and how it travels. We have investigated how light behaves with transparent, translucent and opaque materials as well as finding out about reflection and refraction. We are going to be finding out about how our eyes work and how we see different colours.

6LR

Maya

As part of our topic work on the Maya, we have produce some great art work. We made clay pots using the coil technique that the Maya used. After learning about some Maya Gods we also designed our own Gods and carved them in soap using a range of different tools.

Cookery

6LR have enjoyed their weekly cookery slot during the Spring term. Over the weeks they have made a range of both savoury and sweet dishes. At times, they have been following recipes however they have also had the opportunity to design their own mini pies with fillings of their choice.

PSHE

In some of our PSHE lessons we were learning about gratitude and discussed what we are grateful for. We then made some flower displays with our friends showing what we had discussed.
